Quote #10

HAMM
The end is in the beginning and yet you go on. (1.688)

How is the end implicit in the beginning? Why would people still go on? Is it possible to imagine something that does not have an ending? How would one assign meaning to one's life and one's actions if they would not, some day, end?
